Experimental solderless LED kit for kids

Designed for kids who want to start building electronic circuits, with real components, without soldering.

In stock on Tindie

Paper circuits are low-power electronics that are created on paper utilizing conductive tape, LEDs and a power source such as a 2032 coin-cell battery.

There are small items used in this project such as LEDs and can be a choking hazard for children under 3 years.


  • Coin-cell battery (3V) CR2032
  • Copper tape (1/4″) with conductive adhesive
  • LED – 3mm, surface mount or similar 
  • Blank canvas card stock

 

  • Step 1: Insert the conductive tape through the canvas.

  • Step 2: Peel and remove the adhesive tape.

 


  • Step 3: Mount the 3mm RGB flashing led in the pin hole.


 


  • Cont' tape down the lead of the LED




  • Step 4: Glue the outline of your paper circuit to the canvas.



  • Step 5: Decorate the paper circuit. Add glitter, color, and any extra bells and whistles.

  • Step 6: Add the coin cell battery. Use tape to secure it as needed.

  • Step 7: Tape the rocket flame to the circuit to finish the project.





















Enjoy the project and share with friends.

Paper Circuits | Use cardstock, reactive foil, and a laminator

Paper circuits: Cardstock, reactive foil, &  laminator.

This blog will show you how to make (art or a working) paper circuit. Paper circuits are common and easy to make. I used a basic laminator, cardstock, and reactive foil
 
 
  1. Choose a basic circuit schematic or art design you like. 
  2. Next you will need to print your work using alaser printer using black ink. The heat reactive foil technology will adhere to this type of ink. 
  3. After you have printed your work on card stock you will now be able to send it through the laminator. Simply cut the foil to match the card stock. 
  4. Place the foil paper on top of the card stock
  5. Send both pieces through the laminator. 


Optional (to make a working circuit try laying copper tape or conductive thread on top of printed traces)

Here's what I used:

*HP LaserJet Pro Printer
*Scotch Laminator 3mm or 5mm setting
*Black card stock
